Cat Person

Finished October 24
Cat Person by Seo Kim

This graphic novel is split into five sections. The first encompasses cartoons focusing on the author and her cat Jimmy and captures nicely the nuances of cat behaviour and cat-human interaction. The second is just about her showing her struggles with confidence, distractions, work motivation, and life in general, The third section continues on from the second, showing her social interactions. The fourth has images of her and her boyfriend Eddie, from their up close relationship to their long distance communication and the meeting of their cats. The fifth is a collection of miscellaneous cartoons that don't fit into the categories above.
Her cartoons are open and revealing about her life and her feelings and capture the nuances of behaviour, both human and animal.
